About Sophia One-to-One Tutoring

Undergraduate with three years of tutoring experience from GCSE to A-level as well as English as a second language, looking for work as a one-to-one English or History tutor in London. Focused, compassionate, communicative and organised. Provides punctual and detailed lessons as well as quickly returned assessments and homework, on time and with constructive feedback. Fluency in English and Modern Greek, intermediate Arabic speaker. RELEVANT EXPERIENCE 2012 – Present - Weekly speaking tuition for Second Language Learners while at University - Distance tutoring with university students to help with assignments. - Tutoring students at college to pass IELTS exams in all four fields (reading, writing, listening, speaking). - Tutoring A-level Literature Students at College to help with exams - Tutoring A-level Coursework students and helping them to time-manage and complete assignments. My passion for teaching sprang from a passion for learning: as a child and in my teen years I educated myself at home, through resources given to me by my parents, the newly-developed internet and later on through exam board texts I found online. I had never been inspired by teachers and had found the standardised nature and closed-off attitudes of education institutions in my home country to be inefficient, stifling and counterproductive. Alone, I discovered my own best learning methods and my own passions. Looking back, one thing that could have improved the experience would have been high calibre one-to-one tutoring with an individual who understood my misgivings about formalised education and was both supportive and inspiring of my quest for independent knowledge. I tutored students at my College, during A-Levels, for their IELTS Exams and English A-Levels, as well as providing help for native Arabic speakers learning English in London currently and through these experiences I have discovered that tutoring, particularly on a one-to-one level, is an incredibly rewarding use of my time. I have become dedicated to my students, but not only in terms of how high a grade they achieve on their exam papers but also to how they feel about learning and knowledge. One of my key goals is to inspire my students to learn for the sake of learning and to feel as though becoming educated is a goal in and of itself, not simply an activity one has to perform in order to jump through 'the hoops'.
